Book Tour: The Accidental Guardian

Book Title: The Accidental Guardian
Author: Mary Connealy
Genres: Christian Fiction, Historical Romance, Western,
Series: High Sierra Sweethearts, Book 1Publisher: Bethany House (hashtag: #bethanyhouse)
Publish Date: April 3, 2018 (306 Pages, Paperback)
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from publisher and Just Read Book Tours for an honesty review
Description: When Trace Riley finds the smoldering ruins of a small wagon train, he recognizes the hand behind the attack as the same group who left him as sole survivor years ago. Living off the wilderness since then, he’d finally carved out a home and started a herd–while serving as a self-appointed guardian of the trail, driving off dangerous men. He’d
hoped those days were over, but the latest attack shows he was wrong.

Deborah Harkness saved her younger sister and two toddlers during the attack, and now finds herself at the mercy of her rescuer. Trace offers the only shelter for miles around, and agrees to take them in until she can safely continue. His simple bachelor existence never anticipated kids and women in the picture and their arrival is unsettling–yet enticing.

Working to survive the winter and finally bring justice to the trail, Trace and Deborah find themselves drawn together–yet every day approaches the moment she’ll leave forever.

Are you a person would would like to see what an wagon trail is like. Learn about it some what. Well you get glimpses of it though the accidental guardian. You can see what it like to be a survivor of a wagon train.

We find out about Tracy Riley and some of his past. He has to protect not only woman but also two children. They are survivors of the wagon train. We seem to be following more of Deb's story rather then her little sister Gwen and the children. Though maybe in the second book we learn more about the children and Gwen story.

Deb is adventurous and Trace and seem interested in Tracy from  the beginning. Trace put Deb in his bed that first night. Is there romance between them or not?

It means that when you subscribe to my blog, I can’t, in turn, take your information like name and email, and sell it for profit to a third party company that will then in turn spam you like crazy. I mean,seriously? That’s for the crazies!

Blitz: The Leader's Wife

the leader's wife blitz

Welcome to The Leader's Wife blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Title: The Leader's Wife
Debby Thompson

Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: May 11, 2018
Christian NonFiction, Marriage

As a woman leading a life of influence, you may find yourself without sufficient clarity or equipping for the challenges you face. For many, the role of wife of a leader is one thrust upon, rather than chosen. For others, it is a responsibility embraced but no less complicated to navigate. In either case, as one sharing a journey with a world-changer, this book is for you.

Debby Thompson has spent decades listening to the voices of tried and tested women, and her experiences have instilled a sense of urgency in her to pass on the insights she has gleaned. Within The Leader’s Wife, she addresses some of the most difficult questions facing wives of leaders. With vulnerability and candor, Debby speaks from her own mistakes and discoveries.

The Leader’s Wife offers not a job description but a GPS. It is a blueprint—without how-to’s and ought-to’s—for igniting within you what the Creator has already designed. The Biblical teaching, personal stories, and hard-won lessons Debby communicates will guide and empower you to live with eternal intentionality.
